25 Sweet Photos of Lola and Her Big Sister

My oldest daughter dreamed of life with a sibling. Although she loved spending time with Mommy and Daddy, she wanted nothing more than for our family of three to become a family of four. While she had a furry sister (our dog), having a baby sister was what she referred to as her “dream come true.” When her sister arrived, she thanked her daddy and I for giving her a sister and 11 months later she still adores her baby sister. She has told us that they are best friends and has been nothing but sweet and loving to her. And each time she walks in the room Lola gets excited. Over the past several months I have had the honor of watching these two. I have watched their love blossom into something so beautiful. One might wonder how they can be so close given the age gap but sit and watch the way their eyes light up each time they meet and there is no denying these two were a match made in heaven.

In celebration of Sister’s Day I wanted to share some photos of Lola and her big sister. Thanks to my cell phone and Instagram I am often able to capture sweet moments between these two. While big sister loves posing for photos with her sister sometimes I am able to snap everyday moments (or the moments in between attempts at getting posted photos) of sweetness too. In my heart of hearts I truly believe that the best thing I did for my girls was give them each other. I am so blessed to be able to not only watch them grow up but watch them grow closer together and that is nothing short of magical.

It was so hard to pick just 25 but the ones I am sharing are a testament to the fact that no matter how close or far apart your children are in age they still have the ability to form a special bond, a bond that will ultimately give way to a lifetime of love and friendship. Take a look at 25 Instagram photos of Lola and her big sister:
